Infant marmosets were fitted with zero-powered (plano) soft contact lenses from 4 to 8 weeks of age worn either continuously (24 h per day) (n = 4), for 12 h (n = 4), or for 8 h (n = 3) per day to determine whether limiting the daily duration of lens-wear could significantly reduce or eliminate the effects of continuous lens-wear on ocular growth and refractive state. As in macaques (Hung, L. F., & Smith, E. L. (1996). Extended-wear, soft, contact lenses produce hyperopia in young monkeys… CONTINUE READING
